Kelly LaPorte is a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor, National Certified Counselor, and Certified Alcohol and Drug Counselor.

Hi! I’m Kelly LaPorte, Owner and Clinical Director of Naperville Counseling Center. I am a Licensed Clinical Professional Counselor as well as a Certified Alcohol and other Drug Counselor and I have been in practice since 2010. My business model is based off of a healthy life and work balance with every member of my team, as well as striving for the best possible care for our clients.

Naperville Counseling Center has provided clinical mental health services in the Naperville area since 2014 and to say that we love being a part of this community is an understatement. I have always had a strong connection with all surrounding schools and colleges, with medical providers, and other professionals in the area to make sure that my clients get the best care possible. Whether you are a clinician at the practice or an individual receiving services, my goal was to create a nurturing environment where individuals can thrive and achieve their goals.

My background includes graduating from Eastern Illinois University, where I was involved with philanthropic work with my community service sorority (Epsilon Sigma Alpha) as well as a health service organization involved with educating students on the importance of living a healthy lifestyle. My studies then moved to the Adler School of Professional Psychology (now known as Adler University) where I received my Masters in Counseling Psychology with a Concentration on Substance Abuse Counseling. The experience I gained from my academic journey helped lay a foundation for my empathy and compassion in the counseling community.

My expertise lays with the young adult/adult population, treating ages 15+ with various struggles such as anxiety, depression, ADHD, substance abuse, and difficult life transitions. Due to the populations I treat I tend to utilize Cognitive Behavioral Therapy (CBT), Dialectical Behavioral Therapy (DBT), and Acceptance and Commitment Therapy (ACT) in my counseling practice to help my clients meet their goals. I also focus on the importance of life skills training and empowerment to help my clients gain and strengthen their own skill set to help maintain a healthy lifestyle that works best for their needs.

Kelly is not taking new clients at this time, but if you would like to schedule a consultation with one of our wonderful clinicians please reach out to her at and after answering some short and quick questions she will match you with a clinician that is the best fit. If Naperville Counseling Center cannot provide the services you are looking for Kelly will be sure to provide resources and referrals that will fit your needs.
